If any of these statements apply to you, then it’s highly likely that your accounts are holding your business back. A cloud-based account solution, such as Xero accountants Nottingham, could streamline the way you manage your finances and eradicate the bottlenecks and obstacles that prevent you from making informed decisions to grow your enterprise.

 Does your business rely on outdated spreadsheets that are difficult to manage and analyse, so you rarely have real-time insights into your organisation’s financial position?

 Are your staff overwhelmed by a mountain of paper, including invoices, ledgers, financial statements, and payroll reports?

 Do you experience difficulty in identifying which customers owe you money and spend vast amounts of time chasing unpaid debts?

 Does your desktop accounts system mean you can only ever work on your books when you’re in the office?

Frequently Asked Questions

I’m worried about my business’s data security. Is the cloud secure?

You’re right to be concerned about the security of your business’s financial data. Data leaks and data loss can be catastrophic, both for the financial stability of your business and your brand’s reputation.

Fortunately, cloud accounting is more secure than traditional desktop or paper-based accounting systems. Robust state-of-the-art security measures, such as multi-factor authentication and data encryption, are embedded into cloud platforms to ensure the highest possible level of safety, while software patches are automatically downloaded to close any potential loopholes as soon as they are identified.

What software do I need for cloud accounting, and what is the cost?

Xero is the cloud accounting solution that we recommend at Vanilla Accounting. As a SaaS (Software as a Service) product, you won’t need to install the platform in your offices, so you won’t need a team of IT specialists to manage it, and you’ll also save on space and expense, too.

Xero features an extensive array of add-ons which we can help to set up for you to meet the unique needs of your business, thereby helping you to get the best from the software. This also means you will benefit from clarity about the costs involved and can be confident that you’re investing in an accounting solution that is designed to meet your business’s needs and priorities.

What are the risks of not adopting cloud-based accounting technology?

The business world is constantly changing and, with the rapid growth of the internet and Artificial Intelligence, now is not the time to be left behind by your competitors. Tried-and-trusted accounting methods may have served your business well for the last decade or two, but staying competitive demands that your organisation moves with the times and is as flexible and agile as possible.

At Vanilla Accounting, we understand that you may have reservations about switching to cloud-based technology. Our extensive experience working with businesses like yours enables us to provide incisive advice and guidance as you embrace change. And, because we take the time to get to know you and understand your business’s structure and goals, we can manage your move to cloud accounting to help you to gain maximum benefits from the platform.
